Robopet is a terrifically fun and animated robot. He is the most autonomous and rebellious of Mark Tilden’s line of robot toys. Controlling him by voice takes practice and required several custom modifications to Robosapien Dance Machine to make it work well. Even then, Robopet chose to ignore me at times and do his own thing.
In fact, the Robopet you see in the video is my new Chrome model. My original Red Robopet fell off the table with great vigor so many times, that his right back leg motor went out. This happened because I practiced with him on a table and I didn’t pen him in so that he couldn’t fall off.
There were a few instances where I told him to stop when he was near a table edge, and he decided to roll over and play dead, literally!
